The South of Thailand and its incredible scenery continues to gain popularity with large numbers of travelers now flocking to destinations such as Phi Phi Island and the Similan Islands. Unfortunately the popularity of the mainstream day-tours to these famous islands sometimes negatively affects the guests experience with overcrowded boats, excessive noise and mediocre lunch stops. In response to feedback from agents and clients alike, our southern Thailand Destination Manager, Ms. Amy Cordeau has been tirelessly scouting for peaceful, off the beaten track destinations and bespoke excursions that allow visitors to experience some of the pristine beaches and lush nature in the south.
We’ve totally revamped the standard excursions to now also offer bespoke Phi Phi and Phang Nga programs, adding excursions by luxury catamarans with great food and itineraries that veer away from the crowds. For example “Sawadee Twilight Phang Nga Bay” day tour now visits the popular James Bond Island at the end of the day, when most other day trippers have already left. Enjoy the stunning views at sunset and relax aboard a comfortable catamaran. More new excursions will combine local life and nature on some of southern Thailand’s best kept island secrets such as Koh Prathong or Koh Yao Noi. Either can be experienced on a boutique small group day trip or included in an exciting multiple day island hopping itinerary. Stay for example at Cape Kudu Hotel, a new boutique luxury resort on the beautiful island of Koh Yao Noi, less than one hour by boat from Phuket or Krabi. Also, for those clients seeking to experience the quintessential Thai islands to relax, swim, kayak, cave explore, rock climb or snorkel, we will soon be offering island hopping options. This will allow us to piece together itineraries for clients to enjoy a few days exploring the magical nature, friendly local culture and of course delicious local food of lesser known islands such as Koh Jam, Koh Mook. Include a few nights at The Seven Seas Resort on Koh Kradang, a tranquil island on the south-eastern coast of Thailand and another jewel of the Andaman Sea.
